Love this show, great Jack Straw, some say the best Jack of the 90's but I don't know. Either way this show and the next days show are a must hear for any head.

Wow if you ever need to wake up and your out of coffee just put on this Jack Straw it is probably one of the strongest ever No Joke not to mention the Wang Dang. Funny I was at this show but there were so many good ones on this summer tour I guess it got lost in my memory how good this one was. Great to know there are still hidden Gems to be found.
Subject: I Just Jumped The Watchman
Remember the big wood fence at the back? When Jack started all the stranded heads started pouring over the fence. Security tried to stop them but ended up just watching the incoming heads over the fence. Black Throated was too much. Drums was the best. Seemed like we were in a Swamp. I swear I could hear aligatiors and frogs jumping in the water. Too much fun. Estimated, Bobby was jumping towards the front of the stage

If you're a fan of that unstoppable rolling dead sound - GET THIS SHOW - Jerry sounds like he's in good voice, perhaps a little reticent with his playing but otherwise pretty good, the keys on this sounds are awesome! I mean the band are all playing lovely sparse little phrases which weave amongst each other in the most amazing way - even if you're not 'enhanced' this version of 'Row Jimmy' will take you to another place - beyond the pale and into the outer atmosphere.
The sound quality of this show is spot on - perhaps a little squirrelly in the beginning but however was recording worked it out (eventually).
The other super important factor of this show has to be the insane setlist - whatever you want its there and prolly kicking ass too. For instance I'm not a huge fan of Wang Dang Doodle - but here its more than listenable - hell its pretty enjoyable!
Try it on for size!
Subject: Get this show
I was at all but the first Creek shows. Get them all, but make sure you have this one in the car at all times. The way the softly lit Row Jimmy gives way to the harsh lights of the BTW; The Big RxR Blues is a great version, and the Might as Well was just fun to hear. Then there is the second set. I was on the boards at this show and the band was having a ball. Smiles all around. You can feel the joy in this recording.
Subject: this is the one
there are three different recordings of this night, if you are wondering which is the best sound-wise, this is this one!
Subject: Awesome show
Yeah, this show was really amazing. The sound quality is great too, which helps. Nice jack Straw opener with hornsby going at it. First set is pretty good, with standouts for me being jack straw, row jimmy, and cassidy>might as well. Second set is just awesome though, the exact second set i would want on a dream setlist, pretty much. China>Rider is extremely energetic, one of the funkiest transition jams to rider for sure. real nice uncle john's but the best comes after space. The wheel is slowly jammed into from space and a very nice version progresses with the midi horns present which sounds cool. Right into a Sick Watchtower we go, with vince doin some cool keyboard work, then into a magnificent and smooth stella blue, and closing the set with a pretty rockin lovelight. Box of Rain is the perfect encore to end this night's show. A great listen, download it.

One of the best of Summer '91. The band was ON. Bruce is all over this one. One of the best Jack Straws ever.
